A Swiss artist has been arrested in London after allowing strangers to fondle her genitals in public.

Controversial performer Milo Moiré had been travelling Europe for her new ‘Mirror Box’ show, which promotes women’s right to not be touched, naturally, by letting people touch her.

Wearing a mirrored box on either her top or bottom half, Moiré invited complete strangers to touch her in front of crowds.

During the show, Moiré allowed passers-by over the age of 18 to touch her breasts or nether regions for 30 seconds.

So far, her performance has traveled to Dusseldorf and Amsterdam, but London wasn’t as appreciative of the gesture and the police arrested her in Trafalgar Square.

According to a Scotland Yard spokesman: “Officers arrived and arrested a man and woman on suspicion of outraging public decency” – they charged Moiré with outraging public decency.

The man in question with Moiré was simply the megaphone guy and was released with no further action taken.

Moiré told the Mirror Online:

I was in Trafalgar Square and the police came and told me what I was doing was against the law and I had to come with them to the police station.

I was there for 24 hours; first in one station then another with the court where I ended up having to pay a hefty fine.

It was not nice to be in jail.

Moiré said that when she explained the purpose of her performance to female detectives, they understood, but their chief constable did not.

She added that her treatment in London highlights the different approaches to sexuality in Europe:

In Amsterdam it was very different – they are more free towards sexuality.

But in London it was more strict – too strict I think. They don’t understand this form of performance.

She claims that before her arrest, her audience in Trafalgar Square were responding well, saying many women (and obviously men) crowded around and seemed interested.

But Moiré says she believes she was arrested because ‘some mothers called the police’ as they felt offended. But Moiré is sticking to her fondling act, adding: “It won’t stop me. It is a risk, but it is a risk I am willing to take.”

Well, it’s definitely one way to get people’s attention.
